We woke up to a breakfast of waffles for the second time this session! How did we get so lucky? It was a great way to start the beautiful day. After breakfast campers who are in a swimming level of 6 or above were allowed to sign up to swim to Frog Island. Frog Island is a rocky, shallow area on the opposite side of the lake. It isn't technically an island, but camp traditions die hard. Once the swimmers get to the "island" they are allowed to choose a rock to bring back to commemorate their monumental swim!
Second and third period resumed a normal schedule, but swimming classes for those who had just swam across the lake were a little more subdued to give the swimmers a chance to recover.
Lunch today was pork chops and mac and cheese and of course it was a hit with the campers! We had a jiggly dessert of Jell-o!
General swim was much appreciated today because we are still in the middle of a hot streak! Activity period followed 4th period and campers had the option to jump off the tower, go paddle boarding, participate in an archery tournament or learn songs on the ukulele! There was supposed to be a trip out on the Hunter as well but the wind decided to die after lunch so they wouldn't have gotten too far. They rescheduled the Hunter trip for tomorrow's activity period!
Dinner tonight was our usual Wednesday night meal, "Eat Out!" As a reminder, that is our picnic style meal that we have when kitchen staff is taking their day off. Many cabins enjoyed dinner on docks, while others took advantage of our lean-to.
For evening program tonight we are finishing our game of "Mission to Mars" that we started Monday night. The campers are very excited to finish up the game and hear the final scoring! After our evening program we have a special treat tonight. This is such a well behaved session that we decided the whole camp was going to meet on the A-Field after dark to spend some time star gazing before bed. It should be a clear night so there will definitely be lots to see!
Only 2 short days left, where has this session gone!?
